Do you want to see humans on the surface of Mars by the mid-2030s?

If so, join us at Explore Mars, Inc.’s annual conference, the 2023 Humans to Mars Summit (H2M) that will take place on May 16-18, 2023 at the National Academy of Sciences Building in Washington, D.C. This event is already shaping up to be the largest H2M yet.

We expect hundreds of people to attend, and our conference will feature many luminaries, including senior NASA, industry/commercial, and international leaders, as well as innovators, policy experts and elected officials, STEM professionals, artists and musicians, members of the entertainment community, and many others.

We will welcome back our MCs, Mat Kaplan (Planetary Radio Host) and Beth Mund (Casual Space Host)

“It is time for the space community to inject a sense of urgency into our common goal of sending humans to Mars,” stated Explore Mars CEO Chris Carberry. “H2M 2023 will not only highlight the steps that need to be taken to assure that NASA, industry, Congress and the Administration, and international partners will do what is necessary in order to achieve this goal by the mid-2030s, but also how we can inspire and harness non-traditional business and other players to become our partners in this effort.”

Some of the initial H2M 2023 broad areas of discussion include:
